For all those Muvhango fans who have been waiting with baited breath to hear Pfululwani say "I do" to the chief of the Thathe, Azwindini Mukwevho, the wait is over.

Finally, Pfululwani, played by Azi Malaka, has agreed to be the second wife of the chief.

In a traditional ceremony, Pfululwani and her man majestically walk down the aisle in full view of the Thathe villagers.

The villagers shower the couple with gifts and songs as they ululate. They prance and dance with happiness. Then they cover the bride from head to toe in a blanket.

In keeping with VhaVenda culture, the groom will be able to catch a glimpse of his bride's beautiful face only at night.

And, wait for this, only after he has paid a certain amount of money.

There are interesting events in the wedding scene but for now we are sparing you the details because you will see this on your screen soon.
